Well, KMail supports the latter, but not the former (grmbl, I'll fix 
it). What about Mutt? And FWIW, I think that all mailers will read the 
latter correctly.

I don't really have a problem with invokeMailer creating
  mailto:ossi%40kde.org?to=ingo%40kde.org       (1)
but since applications like KAddressBook do pass
  "Kloecker, Ingo" <kloecker at kde.org>
to invokeMailer(), the simple QStringList::split( ',', ... ) approach 
doesn't work. I have a method in kdepim which can split a list of email 
addresses into a QStringList. It only handles a subset of RFC 2822 
addresses, but it's far better than using QStringList::split(). If you 
really think it's necessary to create (1) then I can copy it to 
kapplication (as helper function).
